The hands of the clock are closing in on midnight on Christmas Eve as two strangers sit locked in a battle of wills. A professor of philosophy has been arrested on her way to celebrate with her family and now sits in an interrogation room. The police have found materials on her laptop which suggest plans for a terrorist attack, she has a history of voicing subversive beliefs in the lecture room but is she a terrorist? Or is this a clear-cut case of state paranoia, of an unleashed police force overstepping all the limits of law and reason? Time is running out…

The ACF London is pleased to host a second reading and presentation of Daniel Kehlmann’s latest play Christmas Eve. Once again, Olivier Award-winning director Laurence Boswell (Artistic Director Ustinov Theatre) will direct this rehearsed readings.
